    Hi, I have 2001 Hyundai Tiburon and it won’t start. The starter doesn’t grip on the torque converter. I turn the engine by hand, but nothing. It gives me a screechy sound. I had to replace the torque converter, because it damages all the teeth.

How can I tell if I have a blown head gasket on my 1999 Hyundai Tiburon

Do you have a decrease in power? Do you have water in oil? Do you have a increase in fuel and or oil usage. How much condensation comes from your exhaust. What type of car is it. Your local AutoZone can be very helpful in diagnosing this problem

Flooded Hyundia Tiberon 2007

If your Hyundai, Tiburon refuses to start, it may be something more serious than a flooded engine. When the spark plugs look fine and the fuel injectors are running well, you may need a new charging or starting system for your car. If the starting system fails, then you need a new unit in order to get your Hyundai, Tiburon back on the road. The starting system in your Hyundai, Tiburon includes many parts such as the battery, ignition switch, starter motor and solenoid. Once you have the source of the problem contained, you have complete access to quality replacement parts here. Whether the battery dies or the ignition switch fails, you can find the parts you need for your Hyundai, Tiburon. Get your car back on the road when you check out this selection of charging and starting systems for your car.

I have a 2003 hyundai tiburon that will stall while driving. I can be driving 60 mph and the engine cuts off. no mechanics have been able to find the problem.

My son has a 2003 Hyundai Tiburon GT and has had the same exact problems, stalling out at a roll and then it got worse. Sometime it won’t restart for 5 mins.
We did these repairs new spark plugs & wires, New PVC valve because we found oil in the up intake manifold, removed and cleaned the upper intake manifold and throttle body, mass air flow sensor, etc. ran better but not fixed.
Than a few days later it completely died and won’t start. While testing all of the sensor on the throttle body I realized it was cranking fine but it wouldn’t kick over! I checked for spark, It was weird we had no spark at the plug now.
We replaced the whole Ignition coil and the problem was solved, $139.50 at the dealer parts department. We changed it in about one hour. Advance was $165.00 and Auto Zone was $159.00. The dealer was cheaper for once and an exact OEM replacement.
It’s been 2 weeks and the car runs better with more power than it has for awhile. apparently the coil was going bad slowly than dies totally.
That threw us off a bit.
This is the fix but make sure you check to see if you have oil in your upper intake manifold which when is sucked in can cause a stall out.
clean the upper manifold and change the PCV valve.
good luck.

2001 tiburon won't start i have replace the fuel filter plugs cables coil pack fuel pressure regulator. i don't know what else to do. may be is the timing belt

sorry your tiburon won'y start and you have spent so much money with no lets start with basics, is battery voltage at least 12 volts and does the engine crank over ?, next do you have fuel pressure of 50 psi and good volume?remove a fuel injector electical connector and test for injector pulse.then perform a fuel pressure drop test on each inj.this will tell you if they are you have good spark at all the sparkplugs? perform a compression test, spec is 203-218 psi. next you will need to check camshaft timing by bring # 1 cyl. to tdc on the compression stroke and checking the timing marks on the crank and camshaft gears.wish you the best let me know the results.

you may also have a plugged fuel filter if crank sensor and temp sensor turn out ok on the ohmmeter.
Next thing you will want to do is check for spark in each cylinder. You can pull one spark plug out, replug it back in to plug wire, lay on engine block, 1/4" form metal and the probe of plug, have someone else crank car, while you watch for spark. Then replace plug and wire and move on to then next. If you have one bad one, replace plug wire, if two or 3, it could be bad coil packs, if no spark, then it would be faulty module or crank sensor.

If spark is good, then you will want to check for fuel. You should have a fuel pressure test port on the fuel rail, with a rag, place over port, and press in valve to see if there is pressure. If no pressure, either fuel filter is plugged or fuel pressure regulator is faulty. As long as you can hear fuel pump turn on each time the ignition is placed in on position. If not, then relay or pump could be faulty.
